Post Postal Inspection Service Says Work at Home Schemes Don't Pay

The United States Postal Inspection Service urges you to be careful about work at home schemes that promise good pay from the comfort of your own home. The newest scam is reshipping fraud. Work-at-home shippers are promised substantial amounts of money - all they have to do is receive, repackage, and then mail merchandise to a foreign address. What the shipper doesn't know is that the merchandise was paid for with stolen credit cards. In effect, the work-at-home shipper becomes part of a fencing operation by receiving and mailing stolen goods

Just came across it, and thought it might be useful to someone. You never know, some people might be thinking of going for one of these work at home schemes. Most of them are just scams.

Often see signs stuck on telegraph poles advertising for home workers...earn $10,000 per month working from home. I suppose there must be some that fall for it.

Or the adds (inbetween the $19.95 infomercials ) for those websites like www.makemoremoney287.com or similar with the dodgy number at the end where you too can make $5000 a month sitting at home.

Jesus H Christ. They ban eccentric German obsesives and delete their posts so that we're left with threads like this. It's just no fun anymore.
